Decided it was time to put all my various bags of HWs from this years shopping trips into one place and this is the outcome (or a small portion of it anyway...)

These ones in this pic are the ADULT collectibles with the real rubber tyres/tires and metal bodies and metal bases.

This Landrover 5-pack I only bought because it was on sale as the original retail price was far far too much and the sale price point was perfect :lol:

:lol: this is just a little drop in the ocean of HWs

These little buggers are EXTREMELY addictive!!

If you still have trouble finding the mini and the green Fiat 500X let me know and I'll send you a couple. The red car is the modern version of the Chrysler 300C.

Great adds Alistair 8-) . Love the Superman T2, looking for that with no success. Also looking for GOTG Milano plus the Blue Eibach Miata.

My newest additions that I found on Thursday, AND one of them is the first and only one I have ever seen or found and I have since been to four other stores to find another with no luck ...not only that but it is now on its way to Jeff as well ;) I hope you take great care of it and I'm sure you'll love it as I know its a casting you love to collect and I knew exactly who I was going to be sending it to once I spotted it mate. I will find eventually find myself another one for my collection.

Well here is my latest update with my newest arrivals. These were acquired from the US, between mty brother and one of my work colleagues I managed to get a complete set of these new Car Culture series (little logo in the top right hand corner of the card) this series so far has been excellent and the rest for 2018 are looking just as amazing!!, thankfully my little 10minute tutorial on what to look for has paid off :lol:

I do like the fact Hot Wheels seem to making a lot more 'authentic' looking cars these days rather than cartoonish interpretations with wild graphics that they used to make. If I wasn't disciplined I could easily see myself starting a collection of these, especially the BMW, Porsche and Mercedes above.

:lol: these were purchased by my brother and one of my work colleagues while they were on holiday/vacation with their families in Orlando a couple of weeks ago. You should be able to find them or older or possibly even newer ones from Walmarts, Targets, Kmart, Toys'r'us and almost anywhere that sells toys even pharmacies too apparently!

Here is a quick update of my latest arrivals which have been accumulating across the pond for about a year now until the box was suitably full enough to ship my way (though next time I may try arrange for a smaller box... :lol: ) they are the group photo. Then there are two other pics which I have managed to source locally so to speak as in the UK.

The Boba Fett picture has two pieces because as you might have figured out by yourselves already they come with two different liveries on either side as does the rest of the series and most of the Adult collectible series of Hot Wheels.

The Ford Thunderbolt is actually on an error card as it has labelled as a Mustang by mistake.

Wow, those form a nice collection by themselves! What is the one on the bottom right, a Datsun 510?

Matchbox Miura looks very tempting, available in red by any chance?
